-Pay is very competitive
-Managers are generally well trained and pleasant
-Positive culture focused on improvement and quality
-Established promotion structure means you know what you need to do to get your next raise (raises occur pretty quickly in the lower levels)
-Since they aren't hiring from literally the bottom of the barrel your coworkers are generally great people
-Has the same cons as any food service job: lunch/dinner rushes can be crazy, some customers are rude, etc.
-More uptight about following rules than other food service jobs, though the procedural discipline here could also be seen as a positive since it helps you understand how a good company works
-With the high pay come high expectations; even when business is slow you cannot slack off
I applied online. I interviewed at In-N-Out Burger (San Francisco, CA).
I was interviewed by two managers inside the building. I was asked about my life ambitions, work ethic, availability, all the general stuff. The interview lasted about 20 minutes, the managers were polite and the questions weren't too hard to answer.
